You Melt My Heart - February Challenge

Hi Everyone,

So lets start things off with the  announcement of the winner of last month’s All About Hearts Challenge. Drum roll please........ Pat you’re the lucky winner of a WOW voucher, please contact me on marion@wowembossingpowder.co.uk to claim your prize and state if you would like it in US $ or UK £.

To kick this month off, we are challenging you and the design team with the theme "Melt-It" We would love it if you would play along with us :) You can link up your entries using our link below ! The closing date for this challenge is 25th February 2018. The winner will receive a gift voucher for £15.00/$15.00 to treat yourself to some WOW! goodies via our website. You MUST use the above technique in your entry to be eligible.  Have fun !!!!

So, what is Melt-It? well, it's an exclusive WOW! product that we came up with a few years ago to use with our powders and moulds, to make 3D embellishments. But, it's also a great powder extender, yes, I could do this technique without Melt-It but it would use up so much powder, by using Melt-It it extends the powder and goes much further, as it's a clear base it also gives a lovely glassy look.
Start by putting some Melt-It on the WOW! Premium Craft Mat, then add your colours, I used some BRAND NEW colours that are due to be released soon… I know I'm a tease, I'm sorry !!    
The new colours used are pink Robin and Bird of Paradise, I also sprinkled on some Coral beach Sparkles and some Opaque bright White Powder. Cover it with some baking parchment. I get mine from the £1.00 shop (Jane Asher) it works a treat. Heat through until it's all molten, keep your heat tool on the parchment as you lift if off, this helps it release.
When you release it, you have two lots to use the one on the mat, let this cool and lift off with a palette knife, or just peel the one off the parchment.
Position your dies in your favourite area and die cut, I used Momenta Heart Dies.
   
Just getting my TEAL Sizzix cutting plates in there LOL !!!!
I stamped a Valentines message on using the Lawn Fawn Celebration Script Sayings.
The bits I had left over I put into a WOW! Foil Tray and re-melted (you can melt as many times as you like) and made little droplets onto my mat ready to use on another project. 
I love that there's no waste with this product.
I hope you enjoyed my take on melt-It and I just know you're going to love all the other girls projects.
Thanks for looking.

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
